EPSON PowerLite 8100i/9100i Projector
Calculating Image Size and Projection
Distance
Positioning the Projector
Use the formulas below either to find out how large your
image will be when you know the distance from the projector
to the screen, or to find out how far from the screen to place
the projector if you want an image of a certain size. Since the
size of the image can be changed by rotating the zoom ring,
formulas are given for calculating both the minimum and
maximum sizes.
Follow these guidelines to get the best results when projecting:
❏ Place the projector on a sturdy, level surface, between
3 and 48 feet from the screen.
❏ Make sure there is plenty of space for ventilation around and
under the projector.
❏ Make sure the projector is within 6 feet of a grounded
electrical outlet or extension cord and within 5 feet of the
computer and/or video source.
Note: The formulas given here are for when the projector is placed
flat, without tilting it up at the screen. If you tilt it up by
extending the feet or use electronic keystone correction, your image
size may vary.
❏ Face the projector squarely toward the screen. Otherwise,
your image will be distorted.
Standard Lens
Note: It’s easier to position the projector when the screen is
directly in front of the room. If the screen is placed diagonally in a
corner, it’s much more difficult to aim the projector squarely at
the screen and get a non-distorted image.
To determine the diagonal size of an image when you know
the projection distance:
❏ Inches:
Maximum diagonal size = (0.6676 × projection distance) + 1.8
Minimum diagonal size = (0.5173 × projection distance) + 1.4
You won’t need to tilt the projector upward as long as you
position it so that its lens is at least as high as the bottom of
the screen, but no higher than the middle of the screen, as
shown:
❏ Centimeters:
Maximum diagonal size = (0.6676 × projection distance) + 4.6
Minimum diagonal size = (0.5173 × projection distance) + 3.6
To determine the projection distance when you know the
diagonal size of the screen image:
no higher than
middle of screen
❏ Inches:
Maximum projection distance = (1.498 × diagonal size) – 2.7
Minimum projection distance = (1.933 × diagonal size) – 2.7
ideal
range
❏ Centimeters:
Maximum projection distance = (1.498 × diagonal size) – 6.9
Minimum projection distance = (1.933 × diagonal size) – 6.9
no lower than
bottom of screen
Long Throw Zoom Lens (ELPLL02)
Note: If you have to raise the front of the projector, you can use
the projector’s keystone correction to eliminate distortion. See
“Adjusting the Image Shape” on page 7.
To determine the diagonal size of an image when you know
the projection distance:
❏ Inches:
Maximum diagonal size = (0.487 × projection distance) + 2.3
Minimum diagonal size = (0.286 × projection distance) + 1.5
If you’ll be projecting from overhead, you’ll get the bestlooking picture by mounting the projector parallel to the
ceiling, with its lens at least as high as the middle of the screen,
but no higher than the top of the screen. Then use the lens
shift knob to position the image on-screen. You’ll also need to
select ceiling projection in the projector’s Advanced menu.
❏ Centimeters:
Maximum diagonal size = (0.487 × projection distance) + 5.9
Minimum diagonal size = (0.286 × projection distance) + 3.7
To determine the projection distance when you know the
diagonal size of the screen image:
❏ Inches:
Maximum projection distance = (3.492 × diagonal size) – 5.1
Minimum projection distance = (2.053 × diagonal size) – 4.8
❏ Centimeters:
Maximum projection distance = (3.492 × diagonal size) – 12.9
Minimum projection distance = (2.053 × diagonal size) – 12.2

Selecting the Video Source
To determine the diagonal size of an image when you know
the projection distance:
If the projector is connected to more than one computer and/
or video source, you can use the buttons on the remote control
or the control panel to switch between the different sources.
❏ Inches:
Maximum diagonal size = (0.231 × projection distance) + 2.2
Minimum diagonal size = (0.171 × projection distance) + 1.7
❏ Centimeters:
Maximum diagonal size = (0.231 × projection distance) + 5.7
Minimum diagonal size = (0.171 × projection distance) + 4.2
On the control panel, press the Computer button to switch
between the computer sources and press the Video button to
switch between standard (composite) video, S-Video, and
component video (BNC).
To determine the projection distance when you know the
diagonal size of the screen image:
On the remote control:
❏ Press the Video button to switch between a standard
composite video source and an S-Video source.
❏ Inches:
Maximum projection distance = (4.331 × diagonal size) – 9.7
Minimum projection distance = (5.850 × diagonal size) – 9.7
❏ Press the Comp1 button to select the Computer 1 source.
❏ Press the Comp2/YCbCr to select the Computer 2 or
component video source.
❏ Centimeters:
Maximum projection distance = (4.331 × diagonal size) – 24.6
Minimum projection distance = (5.850 × diagonal size) – 24.6
After you select a source, the screen goes dark for a moment
before the image appears.
Short Throw Zoom Lens (ELPLW01)
To determine the diagonal size of an image when you know
the projection distance:
What To Do If You See a Blank Screen
❏ Inches:
Maximum diagonal size = (0.876 × projection distance) + 3.8
Minimum diagonal size = (0.730 × projection distance) + 3.0
If you see a blank screen or a blue screen with the message
No Signal after turning on your computer or video source, do
one of the following:
❏ Centimeters:
Maximum diagonal size = (0.876 × projection distance) + 9.6
Minimum diagonal size = (0.730 × projection distance) + 7.7
❏ Make sure the cables are connected correctly.
❏ Make sure the power light is green and not flashing and the
lens cap is off.
To determine the projection distance when you know the
diagonal size of the screen image:
❏ If you’ve connected more than one computer and/or video
source, you may need to press the Computer or Video
button on top of the projector to select the correct source.
❏ Inches:
Maximum projection distance = (1.369 × diagonal size) – 4.1
Minimum projection distance = (1.142 × diagonal size) – 4.3
❏ Try restarting your computer.
❏ Centimeters:
Maximum projection distance = (1.369 × diagonal size) – 10.5

Projector Status Lights
Using the Remote Control
The lights on top of the projector indicate the projector’s
operating status.
The remote control uses a line-of-sight infrared signal. It lets
you access the projector’s features from anywhere in the
room—up to 32 feet away. (This distance may be shorter if
the remote control batteries are low.) You must also be within
a ±30° angle from the front or rear receiver. If you have
connected the mouse cable, you can also use the remote
control as a wireless mouse.

5. Insert the new filter as shown.
Cleaning and Replacing the Air Filter
Clean the air filter at the bottom of the projector after every
100 hours of use. If it is not cleaned periodically, it can
become clogged with dust, preventing proper ventilation. This
can cause overheating and damage the projector.
Follow these steps:
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cable.
2. Turn the projector on its side so that the handle is on top
and you can access the filter easily.
Note: Standing the projector with the handle at the top
prevents dust from getting inside the projector housing.
3. To clean the filter, EPSON recommends using a small
vacuum cleaner designed for computers and other office
equipment. If you don’t have one, use a dry, lint-free cloth.
Replacing the Lamp
The projection lamp typically lasts for about 2000 hours of
use. It is time to replace the lamp when:
❏ The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate.
❏ The lamp light is flashing red or orange.
❏ The message LAMP REPLACE appears on the screen when
the projection lamp comes on (after about 1900 hours). To
maintain the projector brightness and image quality, replace
the lamp as soon as possible.
Warning: Let the lamp cool before replacing it. Also, do not touch
the glass portion of the lamp assembly. Touching the glass portion
of the lamp will result in premature lamp failure.
If the dirt is difficult to remove or if the filter is torn, replace
it.
1. Turn off the projector and unplug the power cable.
Note: When you get a replacement lamp for your projector, a
new air filter is included. You should replace the filter when
you replace the lamp.
2. Allow the projector to cool down for at least an hour (if it
has been on).
3. Use a screwdriver to loosen the two retaining screws on the
lamp cover. When the screws are loose, lift off the lamp
cover. (You cannot remove these screws from the cover.)
4. If you need to replace the filter, pull up on the tab to release
the filter and remove it.
